Publishers Description
What Kind of Relationship Can You Have with Someone You Fear?
For most of us, fear is something we try to avoid. And fearing God hardly sounds like an occasion for joy. But Jerry Bridges shows how the fear of the Lord is actually the key that opens the door to a life of true knowledge, wisdom, blessing, and joy.
We all want a deeper, more intimate relationship with God-one that's characterized by joy. But how does fearing God lead to joy?

Join him as he unveils the awesome greatness of God-His incredible holiness, deep wisdom, and especially His inspiring love. You'll gain a deeper understanding of who God is that will draw you into a truly biblical, and surprisingly delightful, fear of God-a fear that includes your own genuine, heartfelt delight in God.
You'll make the startling discovery that the fear of the Lord, far from being something to avoid, is the key to joyful, fulfilling, and genuine intimacy with God. It can change your relationship with God and change your life Discover the surprising "Joy of Fearing God "

Reviews - What do customers think about Joy Of Fearing God?

JOY OF FEARING GOD  Jan 30, 2007
EXCELLENT SERVICE.----I DID NOT ORDER OR RECEIVE THE OTHER BOOK, EXPLORING ROMANS. THANKS, CAROLYN BOWEN
 
Recommended  Jun 3, 2006
THE JOY OF FEARING GOD by Jerry Bridges is an excellent book on an often over-looked topic in modern Christianity. In the first chapter he states his premise clearly: "There was a time when committed Christians were known as God-fearing people. This was a badge of honor. But somewhere along the way we lost it. Now the idea of fearing God, if thought of at all, seems like a relic from the past. That's to our detriment. The fear of God is actually as relevant today as it was in bygone generations" (1). In the remaining fourteen chapters he defines, describes, and illustrates what it means for Christians to individually and corporately to fear God in their lives. Chapter titles include "Beyond Measure, Beyond Compare" describing God's greatness, "Transcendent Majesty" describing God's holiness, "He Is Lord" describing God's sovereignty, and "He Is Worthy" describing how essential the fear of the Lord is in our worship.
